Waiting on Wednesday: MUST READ New Releases This Month

Wow, it has been ages since I have participated in Waiting on Wednesday. It has been an insane couple of  months. I am writing this write on a reprieve from unpacking boxes but the good news is we are in our new house (mostly). :-)


WoW is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine


I want to acknowledge that there are two titles I am DYING to read that are coming out this month. I am over the moon waiting for:

1) The Elite by Kiera Cass

Can I just say I am one of those who just LOVED The Selection. I also read the novella that came out too The Prince and will be curious to see if there is anything introduced in there will come into play in the The Elite

Can I say I have this one pre-ordered? There are certain books I want to physically own as opposed to an e-book and this series is one of them. :-) 






2) Sweet Peril by Wendy Higgins

Did you all get to read Ms.Higgin's novella that came out recently, too? It is Flirting with Maybe and is a contemporary romance title out. It has an epilogue on her website, so be sure to check it out AFTER reading the title.

Sweet Evil BLEW me away. I stayed up way too late finishing that title because I could not put it down. There is something that has me drawn to Anna and her story. Perhaps it is the self-discovery aspect or maybe it is the dynamics between her and the other nephilims, especially Kaidan and Kopano. If you did pick up Flirting with Maybe, then you know there is an exclusive sneak peak afterward for Sweet Peril.



April certainly has some AMAZING titles coming out this month. I have Dark Triumph waiting on my TBR shelf since it just came out last week. Did you all read Grave Mercy? Oh my goodness where have I been? I am working on my review for it right now. What are you looking forward to reading this month?

Happy Reading!

  6. I am really dying to read The Elite. How was The Prince? I thought that the name was incredibly dull, so I am putting off reading it. Now, I'm considering reading it. Is it worth it?

    1. It is completely about Prince Maxon. It goes into his family dynamics and what he thought of The Selection process before it began. You get to read the scene of how Maxon and America meet for the first time (the night in the garden).

      It is worth it to me because you get to delve a little bit more into Maxon. There were some interesting points raised that I am curious to see they will be picked up in the The Elite

  7. Ugh -- moving is a lot of work, but once you're settled in, you can relax and enjoy the new house.

    Loved Dark Triumph -- a definite must read!

    1. It is a ton of work but it will be nice once we get settled. It will all be worth it--or at least I am telling myself that at the moment. ;-)

      I am looking forward to Dark Triumph. I need to read a couple others first, then I will be reading it. I am looking forward to savoring it. :) Glad to hear it must be good.

      Thanks for stopping by and Happy Reading!
